In the 1990s, NATO became operational for the first time in its 40-year history. The operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and later in Kosovo were a transformative experience for the Alliance. These were out-of-area engagements with new political and operational challenges. 

 In this episode a former NATO spokesperson recalls the key events that marked NATO’s involvement in the Balkans. 

HOSTS: Dr. Stella Adorf, Master Sergeant Alex Burnett, Dr. Linda Risso
